foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then discover actually all he was saying turned out to be true? >> well, first of all, piers, the evidence is not

but not in terms of foreign policy. >> just the optics of that, do you think it has the potential of hurting the campaign? >> i doubt it. it's going to clearly come up in the foreign policy debate, but i think it's more a mistake in terms of foreign policy. at a time like this as you say with so much turmoil in the middle east, to refuse to meet middle eastern leaders, the president of asia, egypt wanted a meeting, prime minister netanyahu of israel, as he well know, fareed knows better than i do, and diplomacy, personal relationships are very, very important. it's especially true in the middle east, where people want to look you in the eye, take your measure, and decide what kind of relationship they're going to have with you. so i think simply in terms of what's going on in the middle east but it's also true, anderson, that i think in terms of his presidency, you know, taxpayers want a full-time president. they want somebody who's looking after them at times of trouble and yes, of course people expect him to campaign, but not at the expense of potential relationships in the middle east. >>
your fear of the word "terrorism." obama, the white house, his whole foreign policy team, they're dealing with a completely bizarre scandal related to the attacks in benghazi, driven by the fact that they spent a week after they knew this was probably a terrorist attack insisting that it was all about an anti-muslim voe and had very little to do with terror. i'm not sure what their theory is. it's part of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in sout

know on our website, cnn.com/opinion, you posed these foreign policy questions to barack obama. number one, can you tell us specifically what the afghan troop surge accomplished? and this, can you guarantee that iran will not have acquired a nuclear weapon by the time you finish a second term in office? david frum, foreign policy seems to be one of the president's strengths, at least that is what some of these polls indicate. of the two questions we just showed, some of the questions you posed here in this ten questions for obama to answer piece, which is likely to be toughest for the president to answer and why? >> all right, well, i put foreign policy questions at the top, that's so core to a president's responsibilities, domestic, occupy the second half of the list. the tougher question would be the afghanistan question. this is the president's probably single largest scale foreign policy decision, the bin laden raid, a tough call and he's made many other decisions both public and secret. but he -- he campaigns strongly in 2008 oninding down the iraq war and escalating up the afghan
, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exe
failure of foreign policy message and leadership. such a misstatement of the facts as known at the time and for her to go on all those showers and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price first. we have so much things to go wrong and everyveryone forgets t it the next day. an american ambassador who was killed where by all the accumulation of evidence at the time the prezusumption had to b it was terrorism. it is definitivety terrorism, to say it was not terrorism at that time was a, to me, terrible mistake to make, whether it was intentionally or unintentionally and show the significance of that, i believe she should resign, yes. >> the white house is standing by ambassador rice. she said everything she said in that interview was cleared by interagency groups and certainly nothing was designed to mislead the american people. >>> to the 2012 election now and there are only 38 days left until election day. early voting has already started in a few states and even more kicking up next week. also nex

? a key foreign policy victory of this administration was the killing of osama bin laden. and this summer at a fund-raiser, the president said al-qaeda is on the run and we got bin laden. well, as we said that july night, the part about al-qaeda on the run didn't look that way to us. al-qaeda linked militants were there on the libyan weapons obtained after the u.s. and nato intervention in that country and now that four americans have been killed in north africa by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in clas
happens in foreign policy. the arab spring is not something the u.s. necessarily has control over. >> that's right, anderson. we have to understand that. that said, our experience tells us whether it is the bombings or the "uss cole." in yemen, libya, because of a weak central government -- we know al qaeda has the wherewithal to take advantage of that and they look for safe havens around the world and it seems, it appears now that is what al qaeda was doing with libya, trying to insert itself where it was a weak space and take advantage of it to our great detriment and tragedy. >> fran townsend, appreciate your reporting with your sources. thank you very much. >>> in other news tonight -- >> in what was likely his last speech at the u.n. general assembly, mahmoud ahmadinejad called for a new world order. as he was speaking rudy giuliani was blasting president obama for not taking stronger action against iran. former mayor rudy giuliani joins me ahead.

believe this was a failure of foreign policy message and leadership and such a misstatement of facts, as were known at the time and for her to go on all those shows and be misinforming the american people and our allies in countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price for this. too much things to go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message and american ambassador was killed where by all the accumulation of evidence at the time the prezumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see if they wanted to say it's definitively terrorism, but to rule out terrorism and say it was not terrorism at that time was, to me, a terrible mistake to make whether it was intentionally or uninte unintentionally. >> the white house is standing by, rice. everything she said in that interview was cleared by interagency groups based on the latest information that u.s. had and certainly nothing was designed to mislead the american people. >>> now to syria where eyes are on the country's chemil weapon stock. the big question is, who has control?
involved in the whole israel/iran debate. it's very, very dangerous for him in terms of foreign policy and in terms of the electorate and i think they made a decision it was better to be criticized for being superficial than to riflk dangerous or uncontrollable sound bites coming out of those meetings. >> quick thoughts? >> combined with the avoidance of four leaders, we're going to have a president after election day. >> i agree. it's easier to go on "the view." >> mitt romney said whoopi goldberg was pretty president tough. you know, there's a little bit among some of the establishment press of looking down their collective noses at letterman, leno, the view, "the daily show," why do the candidates waste their time talking the fluffy stuff. everybody uses the sound bites and the clips. romney talking about snooki. asking what you wear to bed, imagining -- i won't even go there. everybody feasts on that stuff and they derive it both days. i don't think there's a problem going on the programs. that's where they live. they don't all watch cable news all the time. >>> when we come back,
of making broad historical comments about iran, u.s. foreign policy, israel, and much else. so i talked to him about the history of the jews. listen to what he said. you're a student of history, and you said something that i was struck by in one of the gatherings that you were at. you spoke about israel and you said it has no roots in history in the region. and i was wondering whether you really believe that because as you know, of course, jews have lived there for thousands of years, and we know this, of course, because there are repeated references to the children of israel in the koran. there are 43 references to the children of israel. in fact, one of them, chapter 17, 104, we say to the children of israel, dwell in this land, live in this land, referring to the land that is now israel. so do you dispute these facts or do you accept that there is some connection between the children of israel and this land? >> translator: so we're trying to fabricate to make the roots a connection? so you do not draw any distinction between the zionists and the jews? >> i'm asking you. >> translator
, there were huge mistakes made here and huge i argue foreign policy mistakes were compounded by the original decision they weren't going to use the information that the intelligence community was giving them. i think it's a dangerous decision. i think we're seeing that now and we're going to pay a price for this. >> have you been told you're going to get all of the cables, anything in prior months in and years to this, that this was coming, especially in the two or three months before? >> we've requested the documents. they have yet to arrive. the cooperation is not what we had hoped. i just hope we don't have to ramp this up. we should do this as an internal investigation so that we can move forward and make sure that the other embassies of the world that we don't not let al-qaeda off the hook on this and i tell you, again, that 9/11 commission was very strong. not responding to the u.s.s. cole may have cost us the 9/11 attack, but clearly it was in their mind they could do more. we have to make sure this gets shut off now. i said at the beginning, that if a month from that event, we're sti
would be about the economy. lately foreign policy has also been a priority. now president obama has talked on the phone today with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and we understand that mitt romney just spoke with him by phone moments ago. we got -- first up, of course, jen socky, a traveling press secretary for the obama campaign. jen, first of all, there was some criticism -- >> hi. >> hi. good to see you. >> there was criticism, back and forth, about -- one of our laiss said it was a telanovella, this drama between the president and netanyahu over whether or not they should see each other face-to-face, around the united nations meetings, these kinds of things. they have now spoken. does this put this to rest? >> well, suzanne, they also spoke for about an hour about two weeks ago, and they are in consistent contact, as are members of the president's national security team, and seetary hillary clinton. you know, the president is focused on governing, restoring our place in the world, focussing on what needs to be done in these areas, and mitt romney seems to be focused o
about foreign policy of late. we've certainly been talking about the economy. so are you saying, do you believe that that's an intentional squelching of it? obviously you could -- >> oh, yes. absolutely the president flew out to aurora as we expect a president to do, offer his condolences, met with the victims and their families and it's great to meet you, and god bless you. but he really there, and when congressman giffords was shot, gun control. part of that is not just based on what ron says, but it's also based on pure politics. the senate democrats have to defend important seats like montana, and manchin in west virginia, big -- >> politics have always been, this has been a regional issue as well as partisan issue historically. the votes that democrats lost on gun control in red states like that were offset by republicans from more blue constituencies who felt the need to vote for gun control. now you have a situation in which republicans uniformly oppose gun control. democrats split regionally and no president has really been willing to advance the argument. >> it has become the t
, but we're hearing that jim lehrer may ask a question related to foreign policy, libya, syria. do you think -- is that something mitt romney wants to have that discussion now? do you think mitt romney feels there is some room there for him to make some -- >> hard to say what the campaign is thinking, but if you haven't made your case on the economy, sufficiently well, when the economy is in this terrible of shape, i would think distracting from that is probably not a good strategy. let's do too many things not well. i would stay focused on the economy tonight. >> i do think mitt romney can, and if given the chance, will, successfully prosecute the case that what we're seeing is a lack of leadership domestically and in forbes polieign policy as we. we had big headlines, turkey shooting at syria, syria sending shells into turkey. that's big news. i wouldn't be surprised if jim lehrer throws a foreign policy question in. >> if i'm in obama, i would say throw me in the briar patch. that's a strong point for him. i think, unfortunately, the door is now open in a way on foreign policy that
on national security, health care, on taxes, crisis management and overall foreign policy. double digit leads in that poll just released today. one of our go-to guys, peter hamby joins me from washington, one of our political reporters. peter hamby, give it to us bluntly. how bad is this particular poll for mitt romney? >> it is it is very, very bad brooke and one number you mentioned there, obama holds a 25-point lead among women which is a big gender gap we have seen in any poll between the two this cycle. ohio is the linchpin of any white house strategy. romney can still do it, though the needle he's threading becomes very, very thin if he does lose ohio. the question the political people are asking today is this lead actually ten points? or is it closer to what we have seen in previous polls, which is seven, six, five, four perhaps point lead for barack obama. a lot of republicans are criticizing the polls saying the gop is undersampled, democrats are being oversampled. if you talk to any republican in ohio, they'll admit to you they are losing the state they just say -- they point out th
, and in many cases, the u.s. was reacting as often happens in foreign policy. the arab spring isn't something that necessarily the u.s. has control over. >> that said, our experience tells us whether it's the east africa embassy bombings or "u.s.s. cole" in places where that are ungoverned or poorly governed, yemen, libya, because of a weak central government, there is a vacuum. al qaeda has the wherewithal to take advantage of that. al qaeda looks for safe havens around the world and it seems, appears now, that's exactly what al qaeda was doing with libya, trying to insert themselves where it was a weak or ungoverned space and take advantage of it to our great detriment. >> fran townsend, thank you very much. >>> other news tonight, what was likely his last visit with the u.n. general assembly, mahmoud ahmadinejad called for a new world order. as he was speaking, rudy giuliani blasted president obama for not taking stronger action. former mayor giuliani joins me, ahead. e i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas
trail is completely awash with foreign policy snipes and criticism over the economy and crippled unemployment rate. when it comes to health care, crickets. radio silence. despite the issue completely dominating the debate for most of the year. it does not mean you don't care about health care and that it has disappeared from the agendas. oh, no. here is dr. sanjay gupta with their positions and their plans when it comes to your health. >> since president obama's health care law was enacted 3.1 million people under the age of 26 will covered by their parents' plans and preventive care is covered 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known assist the doughnut hole will start getting help. they will receive $250 to help pay for prescriptions and that will over time fill in the doughnut hole. >> 5.5 million seniors saved a total of nearly $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since the law was enacted. that's according to the health and human services department. >> i have strengthened medicare.
personal relationships do matter in foreign policy. and there was an article in "the new york times" yesterday which caught our eye here. it had a quote from a middle east official. it said, you can't fix these problems by remote control. president obama doesn't have friends who are world leaders. he doesn't believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames. you can't accomplish what you want to accomplish with such an impersonal style. do you agree the president has an impersonal style? >> not at all. i think he has met extensively with his counterparts. when you look at bibi netanyahu, i don't think there's a world leader he's met with more. he picked up the phone, they had an hour long conversation. this is a scheduling income patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relati
people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avhe of one of his deputin libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try torounrest. so look i thin one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the short end of this, i doubt very seriously that the administration will try to mislead the american people at a time when as we all know that this administration has been hunting down al qaeda leaders all throughout the middle east and northern africa as well. >> i don't know if you heard, david, mike huckaby suggests this could be worse than watergate. watergate he points out no one was ki
foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly, eureeka, this is so surprising, so amazing but rather people nod, yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> that is so fascinating. dana bash is live from our washington bureau. so, question, do some think friday's jobs report from the labor department, could that be an october surprise? >> sure. why not, carol? at this point, anything could be an october surprise. the fact is that maybe we've already seen it. maybe it was the tragedy in libya, the unrest in the middle east and how the candidates responded. maybe it was that infamous 47% remark that mitt romney had. maybe one or both of the campaigns has some dirty trick in their pocket that
this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts, as were known at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect be our spokesman for the world and misinform our allies and spokesmen around the world. someone has to pay the price for this. things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. we have to send a clear message on such a vital issue like this where the american ambassador was killed, the presumptioned a to be it's terrorism. can see why they would have said it's too early to definitively rule out it was terrorism. to me, it was a terrible mistake to make whether intentionally or unintentionally, to show the significance, she should resign. >> the white house is standing by rice. they said everything she said in that interview was cleared by int interagency groups based on information they had and certainly nothing was designed to mislead the american people. >>> the search for jimmy hoffa. police say there are quote no discernable remains in the soil samples taken underneath the storage shed in suburban detroit. a tipster c
, with foreign policy so critical, you know, are social issues going to be the deciders as they have in past elections, or do you think voters are basically going to wipe the slate clean and say no, no, no, we've got to focus on getting the economy, the economy, the economy, social issues can go by the wayside. maria? >> well, that's such an interesting question, deb, because this is something that i've actually written about. this is where i think republicans have really gotten it wrong. yes, the economy is the number one issue, but guess what, mitt romney has now lost his edge on the economy. and president obama is now outpolling him on who is trusted more with the economy. so with that, what will happen when voters go into the voting booth, they will look at the economy and how both candidates will deal with economic issues, but they will always -- and this is even including when romney had an edge on the economy, they will always look at other issues because american voters are not monolithic. so if you're a latino and you go into the voting booth, you're going look at how these candidat
most have centered around foreign policy others have been about the economy like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exist, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eureka this is so surprising, so amazing, but rather people nod yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> dana bash joins us live from washington. first of all, i guess people will take a look at friday's numbers, the jobs numbers and do we think that could be a, the october surprise that people are waiting for, the unemployment? >> reporter: you know, it could be if it's anything like the unemployment reports that we've seen important the past several months it's going to be pretty static and that would not be a surprise. but, you know, what was interesting about what the presidential historian said that we talked
on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums. if you're looking at your tv screen, mitt romney on your left, president obama on your right. the first question tonight, john, goes to barack obama. >> well, will they have a chance to mix it up and rebutt each other in a free-flowing way. >> organizers hope to have a flee-flowing discussion. this is the kind discussion we like to see because it allows the two candidates to discuss it amongst themselves. if there are questions about each other's plans, they can directly ask each other that. we have not seen that in this campaign and we'll see it tonight. >> you said the economy will likely be the big subject in the debate tonight. we have new polling to give a sense of what voters are saying about this right now. >> it is, john. no surprise, people are very downtrodden about the economy. let's look at the new cnn poll just released coming on the air. it shows th
might be called a benghazi backlash. the question is how they will try to insert libya foreign policy into a domestic policy debate. >> it's supposed to break all kinds of records. maybe 50 million people will be watching tonight. a lot of those people unemployed, very frustrated with their own lives. the other question, of course, who will make the better case on improving the economy? >> that's right. economy is issue number one, as you well known, suzanne, and president obama has been been able to make up some gains against mitt romney on this issue. here's the real question. can they appeal to those middle class voters that both folks are fighting over. not make the debate about themselves, but about who can best soe their problems. mitt romney just needs to make the case that he can do better than the president. the president will be trying to frame that debate that do you want a return to bush era policy that is got us into the mess? both candidates need to be aware that they're not simply attacking the other guy, but proposing new plans, giving those undecided swing voters at h
's double digit in terms of national security, on health care, on taxes, crisis management, overall foreign policy, double digit leads in all those areas in ohio, in that poll that was released just today. jim acosta, he's with me now from somewhere in northern ohio. jim, tell me exactly where you are and tell us what is -- what is team romney's reaction to the poll showing romney running ten points down in ohio. >> well, right now, we're inside of a factory in bedford heights, ohio, outside of cleveland, and on stage behind me is mitt romney, but mike rowe from the tv show "dirty jobs." i'm sure you've seen that show before. >> yep. >> reporter: it is a show you see mike rowe going into all these dirty, nasty, ugly types of jobs and bonding with workers, blue collar workers. that is sort of the theme here today. mitt romney is trying to connect with blue collar voters and the state he's been doing that all day long. he did that earlier this morning in westerville, ohio, talking about how his heartaches as he put it for workers in this country. it is sort of a different side of mitt romney
